What is the shape of a chloroplast?
It is pyramidal in shape.
For the cell wall, it is present in the plant because it functions is to keep the cell its shape. Example: leaf - it has its shape because it has cell wall. For the chloroplast, it is present in the plant cell because it functions is to trap sunlight for the plant to photosynthesize. Example: leaf - it makes food for the plant with the help of the chloroplast
Yes, Chloroplast DNA is Totally Different from Nuclear DNA. Mainly from the aspect of functioning, Chloroplast DNA translates for the proteins Needed to Synthesize Photosynthetic pigments and necessary photosynthetic accessories and photosynthetic enzymes, whereas, Nuclear DNA is responsible for Coding Most of the Other Cellular and Extracellular Functional proteins. Again, Nuclear DNA is mainly Linear in Shape, while, DNA found in Chloroplast are Circular. There is Another point to be Stressed upon... The size... Nuclear…
yes.. the chloroplast can be seen under the compound microscope. in the compound microscope, 1. at 10x, it visualized as the mesh up of the green dots. 2. at 40X, chloroplast can be visualized as the green patches which are in the oval shape and some liquid flowing through the cell in narrow path. 3. at 100X, it is little bit more clearly visible if the immersion oil lens is used carefully..
Mitochondria are 1-10 micrometers in diameter. chloroplasts are a little larger at 2-10 micrometers in diameter. Chloroplasts are less well known than their mitochondria, though they are usually much larger and have a key role in producing the reduced compounds that store energy which is then broken down in mitochondria.
